What is the specialty of the train
Many people believe that this is the same train as Metro, but it is absolutely wrong. The speed is almost double that of metro. The operational speed of the metro is 80 km per hour while the rapid rail will run at a speed of 160 km per hour. Also, it will be run for a long distance from Delhi. For example, in the coming time, rapid rail will run between Delhi-Alwar, Delhi-Panipat, Ghaziabad-Khurja, Delhi-Rohtak and Ghaziabad-Hapur. Work is also going on on the Delhi-Alwar and Delhi-Panipat corridors. NCRTC claims that it will take only 60 minutes to travel 100 kilometers. At present, trains run on long routes at the speed of 160.
who will benefit
Rapid rail will prove to be very effective for such people who want to travel a little longer distance and do not want to spend much time for it. Passengers will be able to travel from Delhi to Gurugram, Ghaziabad or Palwal within a few minutes. This train will have world class facilities as compared to local trains so that the journey of the passengers will be comfortable.
